+ - Game devs predict death of Flash, installed games->

Submitted by rescendent
rescendent (870007) writes "In an Massively.com interview with Illyriad Games devs, James Niesewand predicts the death of Flash and installed games and the rise of HTML5:

"Especially for MMO game developers, I personally don't believe that developers have any real long-term choice about embarking on this path or not. Ultimately, I believe it's either browser-based or obsolescence. If you don't do it, your competitors will, and they'll be making games that work identically on more device platforms, on more browsers, on more operating systems. It's going to take a very long time to get there, though, but this change has begun now, and we firmly believe that HTML5 is the future."

With Microsoft joining the ranks of Apple and not supporting Flash in Windows 8 — there's definitely a risk to flash — but will browser based games really replace installed games?"
